The Alliance '90/The Greens Party has succeeded in taking over governmental responsibility in the majority of the 16 German federal states. This is a great success for the party. However, in order to remain successful and to encourage general confidence in politics, a sober look at the factors which led to the success and which will continue to do so in the future is required. How does good governance work? How does government participation change the decision-making processes and the political objectives of a party? How does good cooperation between those responsible in federal and state government function?

Parting from the experience of German Greens in coalition governments, we will have a discussion with representatives of two different Green parties with hands-on government experience. Be ready for input from Sweden, Germany and Australia, followed by a Q&A!
